From an idea based on a solid concept, to sharp-looking trucks entertaining races fans, it became a reality. On Saturday, Nov. 9, the Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) will wrap up its inaugural season at I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, as part of the track's Redneck Stress Relief 3 program. Spectator gates will open at 3:30 p.m., with racing action getting under way at 6 p.m. sharp. This is the ninth and final event on the 2019 campaign for TDTS race teams. In the season's first eight races, three drivers have two wins each to their credit. Larry Baggett, of Marble Falls (I-37, Mar. 23 and June 29); John Heil, of Floresville (South Texas, June 8 and Cotton Bowl, Sept. 28), and Ryan Doyon (I-37, July 27 and Sept. 7) led the series in feature wins. Texas short track ace Anthony Gordon (Texana Raceway, Aug. 17) and Talon Minten (Cotton Bowl, Oct. 19) complete the list of feature winners in 2019. Gordon also had an amazing season in the Street Stock class, earning 17 wins in Gordon Leland's Alamo Hot Rod Parts/All In Designs Ford. Leading the charge into I-37 is point leader Baggett, who needs only to take the checkered flag on Nov. 9 to claim the points title. A former Street Stock racer at Cotton Bowl, Baggett says he's ready to put a bow on what has been a fun and amazing season in this new touring series. “I'm already loaded up and anxious for our last dance of the year,” Baggett said. “It's been such an exciting, challenging and fun season for us. I really love I-37 Speedway, it's a racy oval. We hit on a good setup last time out. We'll see how it does in Hot Laps, and adjust it if needed. I'm pretty excited.” Doyon will be another one to watch as the series concludes its first season. I-37 is his home track, and he has more laps there than half the drivers in south Texas. His No. 43 Long's Machine/3D Landscaping entry has been fast no matter who is behind the wheel, and Doyon will be a factor to win. “I have plenty of laps at I-37 and will be gunning for my third truck win,” Doyon said. “Yet I know it won't be easy. The competition is pretty tough in the truck series, those guys don't just hand you a position. We'll go over the truck and just try to be prepared. I'm excited to be a part of the finale.” The Texas Dirt Truck Series, presented by Military Talent Source was launched in October of 2018 and is contesting its inaugural campaign in 2019. It was formed on the concept of America's love for full-size pickups and passion for short track racing on dirt. I-37 Speedway is operated by R&M Promotions, owned by Ray Doyon III and Michael Keylich. The two longtime friends and business associates (Doyon in landscaping, Keylich in irrigation) have a passion for auto racing and just completed their third season as promoters at I-37.

The new Texas Dirt Truck Series, presented by Military Talent Source, will be part of the night's program on Saturday, September 28. The trucks will run a 10-lap qualifying heat followed by a 20-lap feature.

They're bringing in some good drivers, I'm confident their visit will be a memorable one.” Leading the charge into Cotton Bowl is series point leader Larry Baggett. The pride of Marble Falls, Texas, has two wins to his credit this season and has run a Street Stock at Cotton Bowl before. Baggett wheels the black No. 3 entry formerly owned by Bobby Sanford. “I'm excited as can be about taking the Trucks to Cotton Bowl,” Baggett said. “I have plenty of experience there and tested my truck there when I first bought it. Mary Ann and H. are just the nicest people, and Cotton Bowl is a world class facility. I feel it's going to be a great race.” Another driver to watch at Cotton Bowl on September 28 is Ryan Doyon. The rising star from La Coste, Texas, has a pair of TDTS feature wins to his credit this year at I-37 Speedway on July 27 and Sept. 7. With loads of experience and tons of talent, Doyon is a threat to win whenever he straps in.

We can't wait to load up for Cotton Bowl.” The Texas Dirt Truck Series was launched in Oct. of 2018 and is contesting its inaugural campaign in 2019.
